We rent three types of equipment designed to collect and store data electronically:
1. TRAX Automatic Traffic Recorders
These are portable devices that can be installed by the side of the road on a temporary basis. These units are connected to road tubes that are installed on the road and used to record traffic as it passes. The TRAX recorders can record data from single days to entire months, depending on your needs. Data that can be recorded includes volume, classification, speed and gap.
2. Radar Recorders
These are portable devices that can be installed on a pole by the side of the road. They will record traffic volumes, speed and length. These units will typically run for one week on a battery charge. An optional solar panel is available as well. The rental period for Radar Recorders is a minimum of one month.
3. JAMAR Hand-held Traffic Data Collectors
These are lightweight devices that are used for the manual collection of traffic data. The most common type of data recorded is intersection turning movements. Other types of data that can be collected with our data collectors include: classification, multi-direction gap, spot speed, stop sign delay, signalized intersection delay, and saturation flow rate.
The equipment we rent is designed to be downloaded into a computer so the data can be analyzed and reports can be produced. A temporary rental license for the software is provided for the period of your rental, plus two additional weeks. This allows you to install and use the software while you have the rental equipment, and for several weeks after the equipment is returned. Software extensions after initial expiration are $35 per week. The software is designed for Windows (7, 8 or 10) based computers. TRAX and Radar Recorders are provided with the TRAXPro software while Hand-held Data Collectors are provided with the PETRAPro software.
All TRAX automatic traffic recorders are supplied with chain, lock, road tube, nails, clamps, download cable and TRAXPro software.
All Radar Recorders are supplied with chain, lock, mounting kit, download cable and TRAXPro software.
All Hand-held Traffic Data Collectors are supplied with carry case, overlays (if needed), download cable and PETRAPro software.
All accessories, with the exception of road tube, nails and clamps must be returned with the rental equipment. This includes user manuals, software flash drives and software manuals. Any items not returned will be billed at standard list prices.
While in a customer's possession, it is the customer's responsibility to use the equipment safely and to have it insured against theft or vandalism. This is typically done by a 30-60 day rider to your present equipment policy, and is very reasonable, often at very little cost.
There is an ample supply of equipment, but during peak season we do appreciate as much notice as possible to minimize scheduling problems, especially for large rentals. Peak rental periods are from April through Sept.
